Cafe Press {Spoil Your Family Review + Giveaway #51}

Welcome to the Spoil Your Family Summer Giveaway Event being hosted by Annette from Annette Funnyjello and myself. Today’s first sponsor is Cafe Press, where you can find funny clothing and accessories, as well as personalize your own items. Be sure to visit Annette’s blog for another chance to win the same prize being offered here.

I had the opportunity to review an item from two section of the Cafe Press website: t-shirts and tote bags.

It took me hours to decide which shirt I wanted. I searched for all of my favorite TV shows, looking for shirts with quotes from them or references to them. I finally picked a favorite after I opened too many tabs to count. The shirt I chose features a Lorelai quote from the show Gilmore Girls: “I can’t stop drinking the coffee. I stop drinking coffee, I stop doing the standing and walking and the words putting-into-sentence doing.” It’s really cute and it fits perfectly. I haven’t had any problems with it shrinking in the washer or anything of that nature and I love showing off my love for Gilmore Girls publicly.

Choosing the tote bag was a lot easier, since I already had something in mind. I knew I wanted a bag with a cassette tape on it. I love music and I already have a tote bag that looks like a turntable, so this seemed like the next logical choice, of course. I instantly fell in love with the one photographed below:

This bag is great. I use it as a diaper bag because it’s huge. It has gotten dirty once or twice and I have put in the washer and dryer. My only complaint is that if I don’t want it to look wrinkled, I have to iron it or fill it to brim with items. I choose to do the latter.

My favorite thing about the Cafe Press website is that there are many different stores custom made by people like you and me to shop from. If you find one thing you like from a particular shop, chances are you will like other items that person has made as well. In addition to all these shops, you can create your own…or just personalize gifts for your family and friends, or yourself.

Giveaway: One reader will receive their own choice of t-shirt and tote bag from Cafe Press.
